Domaine PATTES LOUP Chablis 1er Cru "Butteaux" 2016

About the winery:
Third generation vigneron, Thomas Pico started his estate in Courgis in 2004. Motivated to take a qualitative leap in a new direction, he began a program of strict yield control and a conversion to organic viticulture. All work at the Domaine is done by hand. Pico ferments all wines using indigenous yeast, and he bottles without fining and filtration.
Most of his wines are massale selection planted near the two highest altitude villages in the appellation (Courgis and Preys), with vineyards up to 300 meters in elevation.
